Wonder Woman’s February 2016 Covers and Solicits

DC’s February 2016 solicits went up on Monday, and it looks to be a fairly busy month for Wonder Woman, with all of her usual series plus a special and a couple of team books. It’s been good to see Wonder Woman having an increased presence across the DC universe lately, even if her two mainline titles have been not so great. Let’s take a look at what Wonder Woman will be up to this February, starting with Wonder Woman #49:

Wonder Woman confronts what the return of Ares and Apollo will mean for her, and how it will impact her role as the God of War.

The return of Ares and Apollo is a surprise, but also not a surprise at all once you think about it. They’re gods. They never go away for good. Their return could really shake things up, both for Wonder Woman as the God of War and for Hera controlling Olympus, though neither of these things have been a huge part of the book as of late. In fun news, Wonder Woman’s back in her old costume! Hopefully that’s a change that sticks. Her new one outfit was not great.

Next up is Superman/Wonder Woman #26:

“Savage Dawn” continues! Suffering a terrible loss, Wonder Woman comes to the aid of the Kryptonite-charged Man of Steel to face the terror of the twins of Vandal Savage!

I didn’t know that Vandal Savage had twins. I must be out of the Vandal Savage loop. He’s always been a weird character for me. He sounds cool; an immortal dude constantly trying to take over the world and such. That should be fun. But I’ve yet to read a really good Vandal Savage story. Anyway, his twins are in this one and Superman’s all jacked up with Kryptonite and, if EVERY issue of this series that has come out already is any indication, this probably won’t be terribly good.

And now, a comic that is fantastic, The Legend of Wonder Woman #2:

As their training sessions grow more intense, Alcippe teaches Diana about life as well as battle while the island they both love continues its fall. When the festival of Anthesteria dawns, so too does the possibility of an Amazonian revolt against Queen Hippolyta!

We’re only one issue into this book, digitally, but DANG it’s so good. And it looks like there’s a ton of fun stuff coming up as well. It’s a fresh take on Wonder Woman that’s iconic and true to her roots, and the first issue knocked it out of the park. I’m so excited for the second digital issue to come out tomorrow! This is going to be gorgeous in print, too. Definitely add this series to your pull list, gang.

Wonder Woman also looks to be playing a key role in Justice League: Darkseid War Special #1:

The massive “Darkseid War” epic continues to set the stages for the future of the DC Universe as we reveal the secrets behind its newest major player: Darkseid’s daughter, Grail! And if the Justice League is not careful, the spoils of war will all end up with her! See the truth behind Grail’s role in this war and the future of the DC Universe as she tears her way across it. Don’t miss this extra-sized special offered at the regular price of $3.99!

This Darkseid War situation has been going on for ages! I don’t know much about it, but I do know that Darkseid’s daughter Grail is half-Amazon, and that Wonder Woman supposedly has played a decent-sized role throughout the event. I’m actually looking forward to reading it all once it’s collected; Jason Fabok’s been doing most of the art, and he draws a fantastic Wonder Woman. If you’ve been keeping up with the main Justice League book, be sure to pick up this special.

Elsewhere at DC, Wonder Woman is part of the team in Bryan Hitch’s Justice League of America #8, she’s fighting World War Two with some other lady superheroes in the wonderful DC Comics Bombshells #9, and Donna Troy is a regular part of Titans Hunt #5.

Look for all of these books this February, online and in comic shops everywhere! If you’re on a budget, I’d recommend the digital-first books above the rest; both The Legend of Wonder Woman and DC Comics Bombshells are excellent, enjoyable showcases for Wonder Woman.

    I saw Vandal Savage’s “twins” and immediately though of the Wonder Twins. Idk why.

    janarrah, The twins seem to be Downpour and Shifter from the Justice League Unlimited episode, “Ultimatum.” The Ultimen were clearly inspired by the Super Friends cartoon, with the twins being analogs of Zan and Jayna.
